All of the dogs we rescue are placed within our foster care program until they are adopted by families who have made a lifetime commitment to adopt our rescues. Through our foster program, our rescues have a safe place to live until loving homes can be found for them. Our rescued dogs live with their foster families and receive the same love, care and attention as our own family pets.

While in foster care, our rescues receive medical attention and live life as a dog should..happy to be with a family and being loved! Personalities of dogs in home settings are more easily accessed and provide us with a more accurate profile for each rescued dog. The foster caregivers help us by providing an overview of the personality of the rescue dogs in their care which helps us determine what type of family would best fit that particular dog’s needs. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption and receive up-to-date vaccinations including rabies. Our foster families are welcome to adopt their foster dogs, within limits, if they find their perfect match!

Please contact us at for all inquiries, allowing a minimal of 24-48 hours response time and please note we require that you to fill in an adoption questionnaire. All applicants will be screened, we work on a first come first serve adoption basis and DINO holds the right to deny any application they see fit for the best interest of the animal requested.

Hi! I’m Hope. I’m a spunky little girl full of life and love the great outdoors when my foster mom takes me for walks. I also enjoy other pets big or small if they play with me. My mom says I will be a big girl when I’m grown and will require lots of exercise so an active family would be great! Thank for reading about me, can’t wait to meet you.

Hi my name is Hoseh (AKA Freso), I am house and kennel trained, I like my bed but I also like to sleep under your bed if allowed. I have been meeting other dogs regularly and get along well with all sizes and breeds. I did not like cats but have now learned to ignore them. I love to carry stuffed animals around to lick and cuddle with. I don’t get on the furniture but if someone is sitting and petting me I will try to slowly crawl onto them. I’ve been great with school aged children and 5+ is perfect for me. Toddlers I like well enough, but they push my patience because they won’t leave me alone. I do love to play and cuddle and happily let kids walk everywhere in the house and yard with me. I love to be hand fed and spoon fed by them and don’t mind when they put hats and scarves on me. I did not like to share my food but of late am eating out of the same bowl with a buddy. My recall is getting better although I am still a 3 call dog...meaning I come the third time you call me. I’m getting better on a leash but still don’t quite sit when we stop during "heel" , but I pull a lot less! A loose leash walking is not my thing yet, but with time I will learn. "Down" (lay down) escapes me completely, but "sit" is solid. Please contact DINO rescue or put in an application to adopt or foster me. I need somewhere to go immediately.

Hello my name is Tiquette, I am rather special dog. I am a three year old, spayed female. I am quite timid at first and not good at showing my personality, but I have changed. I was in a family who used me only to protect their little run down restaurant. No love given, I spent many lonely days and nights left in the blistering heat or cold rains with no shelter. I was kept alive with the bare minimum of food and water. That was until two people saved me. I have adapted very well to spending a year with Europeans. They have to go back home are unable to take me so I am looking for a forever home in Canada. I still go and patrol the streets on my own so I will need a well-fenced yard. I enjoy being with people and love affection. I would be so grateful to have a family that loved me. I am not annoying and very independent. I have never bitten anyone or other dogs. I am very good off the lead; I will stay with you but be careful if cars or motorbikes pass by, I will chase them. I love to go on long walks, am used to walking a few km on the beach every day and also am comfortable going on a moped.
